HalloweeM 44½: A WeeM-Away

October 30 – November 1, 2020

Program Details*


The Infamous Costume Parade


It’s one of the many things for which we are (justly) famous: costumes. This year, the audience will vote for Best Pun, Worst Pun, Best Traditional, Best Group, and whatever other categories strike our fancy. Dress up as your favorite character. Put together a costume based on this year’ theme. Create a pun-tastic ensemble. Wear a traditional costume. Show your sexy side. Be part of a group.

If you will be entering the costume contest, be sure to submit a video, including the name of the costume.

Be prepared to laugh, groan, and, sometimes, to be confused. Enjoy this unique video of all the submitted costumes and discover one of the reasons that our Chicago Area Mensa RG is so great.

Warning: Children and family costumes will be shown first. Occasionally the adult costumes are not appropriate for younger or more sensitive viewers.

BTW. The video of the costumes will be streamed multiple times during this allotted time so if you missed part of it, you can see it again … and again.
